The Voice of Our Supporters


“When you witness the horror that really happens behind closed doors and slaughterhouses to farm animals all over the world, it’s impossible not to be affected by it and to realise that we have to do something drastic to stop it.”

Joaquin Phoenix
Activist and actor, speaking at a protest with Animal Equality in London
“Nothing prepares you for looking into the eyes of a mother pig whose life is to be impregnated and left in a cage until she’s slaughtered. I can’t imagine how awful it must be to be literally trapped and crushing your own babies and not be able to do anything about it.”

Rooney Mara
Activist and actress, speaking about her experience inside a pig farm
“Going into that foie gras farm gave me an insight, if only brief, into the lives of the brave activists who venture into factory farms and slaughterhouses to uncover all manner of animal abuses. I’m talking about the investigators who see the kinds of things I saw and feel the kind of pain I felt, and yet make the difficult decision to go back again day after day to do more.”

Peter Egan
Activist and actor, speaking about his experience inside a foie gras farm
